Expert Answer:

 

From the question we gather that the required number will be 17 less than the smallest common multiple (LCM)of 520 and 468.

The L.C.M of the given numbers =product of the numbers /hcf=4680

So we need to find the number which is less than 4680 and less by 17.

So the reqd number is 4680-17=4663

Check

If we add 17 to 4663 ,

 we get,

 4680 ,

 which is exactly divisible by 520 and 468
